May 27th blog prompt

As time goes by I forget the wonderful memories I had as a child. Until I read a blog prompt from DSP. Wednesday May 27th's blog prompt...

Blog Prompt - "Today is National Grape Popsicle Day and tell me about your favorite Popsicle or ice cream treats as a child."

What a wonderful prompt! As soon as I read it I recalled this memory.....

I'm not sure how old I was at the time, but I remember visiting Grandmas trailer home in Wisconsin. We would often go to the next door neighbors and play on the swing set, but we always had to keep an eye out for those vicious Boston Terriers named Penny and Spike. Little ass holes they were.

If they came into Grandmas yard barking with those ugly little fangs showing Grandma would get the broom out and shoo them away.


On with the prompt:

One weekend day we were playing on the swing set. Penny and Spike must have been in the house because we didn't hear the annoying bark from the vicious ones!

The picnic table was covered with a red and white checkered table cloth. There was a box of ice cream, and graham crackers. My mom would remove all the cardboard from the box of ice cream and precisely slice it in squares to fit between the graham crackers.

She always had a big glass of warm water for dipping the knife to make slicing the ice cream easier. They were piled up on a plate. Ohhh so good!! The ice cream was a little soft so it would squish out the sides of the Graham cracker.

The best childhood treat for me:)

Now what did I do with that grocery list?......

What a wonderful memory. Isn't it funny how you see something and it triggers something from your past that you haven't thought of in a long time.

That treat sounded wonderful.

Oh my, I haven't done that is 30/40 years. Maybe I should try it for the grands. But does ice cream come in the rectangular boxes anymore?

Sure does come in boxes! At least at Cub foods:)
